The Australian Space Agency wants to hear your views on proposed cost recovery charges for approvals under updated regulatory arrangements. These arrangements will commence on or before 31 August 2019.

The consultation seeks comments on:

  • initial estimates of demand for approvals to conduct space activities
  • how estimated costs compare to other costs for space-related projects
  • any potential impacts from setting the fee amounts
  • the impact a decision on a full or partial cost recovery model would have on your business or projects

This feedback will support the Government’s consideration on an appropriate charging model.

We welcome submissions by 13 December 2018.

Read the draft Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS) and provide feedback.
